Celebrated Hollywood veteran actress Maggie Smith has heaped a lot of praises on the young crop of actresses in the Hollywood industry, saying that the young generation of actresses are brave and fighting their hearts out to secure a place in the industry.
Maggie Smith, who recalled her own acting days, said that during her time there was not much competition for survival. But the actress thinks it has now become very hard for the young actresses to survive in the industry and make a mark.
The 82-year-old Hollywood star also stated that she would not have made it big in the movie industry if she had been a present day actress.
"I think they are so brave, the young actresses of today. They seem to have to strip off every second. I can't imagine how they cope with it today, I really don't. They are required to do the most extraordinary things." Maggie Smith said in a statement.
"If I was asked to start now, I just don't think I could, seriously. It's difficult to imagine myself at that age because girls are starting even younger than how young I was when I started. I think it's very, very, very hard now," Maggie Smith added further.
